The best 5 days kilimanjaro climbing Marangu route from Arusha and Moshi in 2023-2024-2025
This Marangu route, also known as the "Coca-Cola" route, is the oldest and most well-established route on Kilimanjaro. This is the only route that offers sleeping huts in a dormitory-style settlement in lieu of camping. There are 60 bunk beds each at Mandara and Kibo huts and 120 bunk beds at Horombo hut. Guests are supplied with mattresses and pillows, but sleeping bags are still required. The huts have communal dining halls and basic washrooms, ranging from flushing toilets and running water at the lower huts to long drop toilets and buckets of water at Kibo Hut.Many favor Marangu because it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path. However, the short time frame of the route makes altitude acclimatization fairly difficult. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the southeast. Marangu is unfortunately less scenic than the other routes because the ascent and descent are along the same path. For that reason, it is also the most crowded route.The best 5 days of Kilimanjaro climbing via the Marangu route: a full, detailed day-by-day itineraryDay 1: Kilimanjaro National Park Gate to Mandara HutDay 2: Mandara Hut to Horombo HutDay 3: Horombo Hut to Kibo HutDay 4: Kibo Hut to Summit, then Horombo HutDay 5: Horombo Hut to MoshiThe best and most affordable prices for a 5-day Kilimanjaro climbing tour via the Marangu route range from $1600–$1800 per person per trip depending on what is included and what is not included, as well as on accomodation before and after climbing and pickup and drop-off from the
